@OldBrushNewPaper Wow, I should have gone looking for the Easy Reader to begin with. (It’s one of the two local papers in the area.) The owner comes off a *lot* worse with the additional background of how she allegedly treated the last long-term tenants.

Tried to catch a good photo of some waves hitting the pier after the Skechers Pier to Pier Friendship Walk. Google stitched together an animation. I’m impressed at the auto stabilization, though I’m sure the distance and the solid pier both help with that.
